GEAR: Navistar’s MaxxPro Recovery Vehicle rescues battlefield vehicles from sticky situations
| June 04, 2013 |
This is Navistar’s MaxxPro Recovery Vehicle, a hulking off-road force that can go into dangerous situations or terrains and pull out detained comrades. The MRV is powered by Navistar’s MaxxForce 9.3D, an I-6 diesel engine that delivers 375 horsepower and a huge 1,250 lb-ft of torque.
Of course to do its job well, the MRV needs to offer serious protection. The vehicle offers protection against small arms fire and has a V-shaped hull that serves to deflect IED (improvised explosive device) blasts away from the vehicle.
To accomplish its main task, the MRV has a 30-ton boom recovery body with a crane mounted on the rear side of the chassis. The crane is capable of rescuing just about any military vehicle you can think of.
You can watch a video of the MRV in action below.
